Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

Get ‘Fresh’

And did somebody say ‘free burritos’?

By Rod Lott December 7th, 2011

What are you doing tonight? I know it’s short notice, but how about a movie complete with free burritos from Chipotle?

At 6:30 p.m. at Convergence, 1755 N.W. 16th in the Plaza District, a screening of the documentary film “Fresh” will be held. A suggestion donation of $5 is all you need to get in, and that benefits Urban Harvest, a sustainable gardening program of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

Directed by Ana Sofia Joanes, “Fresh” is, per its website, “more than a movie, it’s a gateway to action.” It celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing the food system by forging healthier, sustainable alternatives.

To that end, those aforementioned Chipotle burritos will be filled with sustainable and naturally raised ingredients.
